What to do with a one-year-old child
The first year of the baby’s life flies very quickly. During this time he goes a long way from a helpless newborn, unable to control his own muscles, to an independent personality with his own interests and desires. A one-year-old is very active and unconcerned. He wants to know the world, but can not concentrate on something more than 10-15 minutes.
He confidently walks and knows how to perform many simple actions, but is not able to entertain himself. Therefore, before the mothers of one-year-old youngsters, the question often arises: what is to take the child to direct his energy in the right direction? There are a lot of options for different activities and games. The main thing is to remember: all of them should be focused on the active development of the baby and take place with the direct participation of an adult.
Counters of children’s shops are literally filled up with goods for every taste and purse. However, parents should protect themselves from the temptation to buy them all, especially with caution should be approached to buy so-called developing toys with many functions. It is better to look at simple but very useful toys, such as:
- pyramids and sorters;
- simple puzzles of 2-3 parts;
- balls of different sizes;
- nesting dolls;
- musical instruments (drum, tambourine, pipe);
- toys-mittens or a puppet theater;
- dolls and cars.
